They DO NOT write you a check and then you go and buy a phone. I said that I called and had a very extensive talk with a rep and asked alot of questions, You have to get the phone first and then submitt hem the receipt for reimbursement.
Just like when you buy the initial insurance you have to furnish them the receipt that you DID buy the phone.

You have 2 options, You send it to them prepaid and they find a service REPAIR center and if in 5 days they cannot fix it you pay nothing, then you can go buy another phone at full value of which at that time they will reimbuse you. I don't know about you but I don't have $600.00 floating around to cut loose until they reimburse me.

I paid for AppleCare on my iPhone 4 but I think in the future I'll look for an alternative that includes loss and damage. I think the Verizon $12 a month insurance is too much, especially if it has a high deductible. I have the $6 plan on our kids' feature phones cuz they are constantly losing and breaking them but there is a limit to how many $50 replacements you can have. Our son helped us find this out. The last time one of their phones broke, I wound up buying a replacement on ebay for what it would have cost for the deductible on Verizon and there was no risk of having somebody back charge me for $599 because they ruled the damage "abuse" after I'd sent it in.

well i did buy the sq insurance yesterday and after reading this thread i called them and bassically they told me 5 days for fix if its not fix i have to spend 730 that i dont have send them my recipt wait for them to refund me back, non the less that could take weeks, i went searching for information and find out that this happenes quite alot and sometimes they say the dont warranty that problem such as hardware failure even though it says on their site they do, but anyways i cancelled it and im going back to the verizon insurance due to the fact that i can walk in with a busted phone and walk out with a new or refurbished one, where with sq i would have to wait 5 days to even see anything resembling my phone, i dont know about you but i cant go 5 days without my phone

problem is i just dont have 730 at all, im 18 barely make 400 every two weeks, pay my own insurance,gas,rent everything im lucky if i have 50 bucks left after each pay check, if it costs more for verizon then im happy because i then know i can get phone even for 170 and have it in two days then have to wait 2 months to get enough to puy a full price one, and i lose my phones so verizon just seemed right for me but it might not be for other people just my .2$

Best option I've seen, and they also can provide a loaner phone while yours is being repaired.

This one sounds interesting too:

Don't want to argue with anyone I'm just saying what happened to us with SquareTrade. DIL broke screen by dropping iPhone. File claim online. They send email with label to print.it is postage paid label with next day delivery. Sent off and in 5 days we got it back with new screen. Later the same DIL got the iPhone wet. Filed claim. Got label. Mailed and in 3 days the notified us it could not be fixed and they would issue funds. I believe it was either 2 or 3 days we had the money. Went then and used an upgrade we had available on family plan and got her another one.I just want people to know we never had to go buy phone, mail receipt, and wait for ever for money. Just a FYI for anyone on our experience.
